The Kildonan School Review

When people enroll themselves or their children and loved ones to a school there are many considerations before the decision. They need to know what field they want to learn. Different field will influence the best school needs to choose. There are many schools which are well known for their expertise in one field and there are few which are good at all fields. The quality of school is not only about this field suitability but also the facility, curriculum, system, and lecturers there. Besides, the budget will influence people options in choosing school. These kinds of considerations are further if people who will be into school have special needs. They need special treatment and method in order to let them adapt with normal life and understanding toward the lesson.
If you want to enroll someone dyslexic, it is better to go to special school. It aims to maximize their study so they do not need to have difficulty adapt with regular school. Dyslexic people can be very talented so it is better not to waste their talent by forcing them study in regular school. The Kildonan School can be the best option. This school is for grades 2 to 12 even there is post graduate school as optional. Usually it consists of 140 students. The teaching system here is using Orton Gillingham which focuses to teach dyslexic people or the ones who have difficulties with languages. To know more about the school and how they teach, people can visit
With the Kildonan School dyslexic people will learn how to improve their hidden talents. They are not judged like what in regular school because of their difficulties in understanding the lesson. In Kildonan School there are also community activities to help students interact with society. It is the pioneer of school which develops curriculum and system to support dyslexic and specific language disabled people.

Restaurant business classified business that is very interesting and promising. Some business people even dare to mention that the restaurant business is very big profit. But of course all that should be supported by various kinds of preparation. Preparation of starting a restaurant business / other eating places, is the availability of infrastructure and facilities. Infrastructures are the things that ease the physical and non physical that supports the operation of the means or tools. While the facilities are the tools to perform certain activities.
In the restaurant business / restaurant, then that includes infrastructure is a strategic place, experts (the cook), venture capital, and business licenses, while tables and chairs, tableware, cookware, and so is the means. For that you should be able to choose a place where you get all sorts of restaurant equipment needs are genuine, complete and competitive prices. And to give Price Match on the price of competitors.

Charter School Today

Charter school are elementary school or secondary education in the United States, which receive public funds, but were free of certain rules, regulations and statutes which, for other public schools in exchange for any type of responsibility for the manufacture of certain results that are in every school in the Charter.

Charter schools have the potential to enhance competition in the public education sector. In one education publication, Charter Schools could have a particularly significant impact in the labor market for teachers. This study uses data on more teachers from one of school districts to explore the impact of charter school competition on the compensation of teachers at traditional public schools. The analysis suggests that once charter enrollments reach critical mass, increasing competition from charter schools increases salaries for all but the most experienced teachers.

While charter schools, an alternative to other public schools, they are part of the public and are not entitled to free education. In case of lack of space on a charter school is limited; admission is often the permissions on the basis of lottery. Some charter school teachers, parents, or activists, by the traditional public schools. In addition, schools may allow companies to open channels of benefit of the Charter for the schools.

Internship Research Positions in Environmental Water and Water Waves at LabMath-Indonesia

LabMath-Indonesia is an independent research institute. We work together with various universities in Indonesia and abroad. This is shown in our activities:

We regularly organize so-called Research Work Shops where students (S1,S2 and S3) and staff from universities, governmental institutions and companies, are introduced into a specific topic. After one week of courses and small assignments, the second week is dedicated to execute more extensive projects that usually are closely related to current research. As an example, in the past year we organized RWS on Tsunami
Modelling and Simulations (January 2009), Financial Engineering (August 2008) and Integrated Water Resource Management (Jan 2008). Our research activities are supported by external sources: international research projects, projects from large , and from Indonesia.

In the coming years we want to focus our activities to problems from nature and environmental sciences. Especially about problems that are of direct relevance for Indonesia: effects of Climate Change on the coastal area (high waves, endangering the coast and ships and offshore structures) and on the (rain) water availability for agriculture and human consumption.

This year we have national and international symposia on these topics. For the preparation of new research contributions, and for the running research projects, we can use the help of good students and graduates.

While working with you on interesting topics, you are developing your skills; besides that, if needed, we support you to improve your English. If you want, we can advise about studying abroad. (For instance, LMI hosts the Info & Support Office of the University of Twente.)

Below we indicate some topics for which we look for your interest to contribute to our research.

Almost half of the rain falling on the ground is evaporated or transpirated by plants. BMKG, the Indonesian Institute for Meteorology, Climate and GeoScience, wants to be able to predict the ET. For that aim we want to make a model based on rainfall, soil properties, and weather conditions, in particular the wind. We will use satellite data to improve the predictive models that we make.
Two students from the university of Twente visiting LMI will also work on this topic, so that a close collaboration can lead to substantial results in a recently granted KNAW-mobility Project.

We want to use new codes that have been developed at LMI to simulate waves in a harbour to predict the maximal wave heights and investigate undesired resonant motions. A realistic Indonesian harbour is taken as test case. This project is in collaboration with UGM.

Climate change will lead to stronger winds and therefore to higher waves. Wave prediction in the coastal area is important for coastal safety measures. This project is aimed to contribute to the development of a complete simulation environment for coastal waves.

We have various problems that are directly or indirectly related to ship design and safety of sea transport.

The internships are executed at LabMath-Indonesia, Jl. Anatomi 19, Bandung.
Including a one-month probation period, the positions are for a period of 3 months with the possibility of prolongation. During the execution you will get valuable experience in mathematical modelling and will work in a stimulating environment. The monthly allowance will depend on qualifications and performance.The internships are planned to start not later than 1 May 2009.

Candidates should be eager to be involved in this research and learn many new topics and ideas. They should have good knowledge of calculus/ analysis including ordinary and partial differential equations, and be experienced in programming, for instance in Matlab.
Students or graduates with good grades in S1 or S2 from mathematics, physics, oceanography, geosciences, engineering etc can profit very much from this research experience. A sound scientific attitude (critical, inventive and independent) should be accompanied by a strong motivation and disciplined work attitude.

Candidates should send an updated CV, a copy of last degree and academic record, proof of English proficiency and letter of motivation before 15 April 2009 by email to:
Dr. A. Sopaheluwakan e-mail: ardhasena[at] with
